    They are out there! Seen several on line/fleabay/etc. along with a few universal units. Check Dorman products as they have similar looking universal units. Heres what the GM OE looks like:

    On the Northstar the camshaft position sensor is on the passenger side end of the rear cylinder head. No where near the oil filter housing. See attached pic. Do you really mean crankshaft sensors? There are 2 on front of engine....kinda near the oil filter housing. You do have the Northstar and not the 4.9L engine right?

    It's not really up to the dealer to find a part or solution for a 25 year old car. Anyway....there is a site that shows a short list of dealers that may have one. http://oemcats.com/oem-parts/18018429.html Don't hold your breath on that list....but may be worth checking.

    Good bye Betty White!

    Sold my beautiful '03 diamond white SLS last week, and really sad to see that go! Despite I really like my "new to me" '09 CTS, that SLS sure was a real cream puff! Still not a lick of rust on her, and was a gorgeous car inside and out! The new owner was thrilled, and couldn't hand over the $2K quick enough! He said he doubted he'd even register it till spring, wanted to keep it garaged to preserve her good looks. It did have a few mechanical issues... the dreaded P0741 TCC solenoid stuck, but he was fine with that. Had its electrical gremlins; climate control display and pass. heated seat not working but you can live with that... It was a great car for me and I racked up about 40K miles in those 14 months I drove it on my commute to work. What a comfy ride! I always told people, I felt like I just drove my leather couch into work! Good bye Betty, we will miss you!

    Good bye Betty White!

    Wow, I think you are correct Bruce! I did not realize this, but when I looked it up this is what I found on WI DMV site... Now this doesn't say specifically the purchaser needs to register within this 30 days, but I'm sure they would love to get that revenue stream coming in... as well as make sure they want to know who's possession the vehicle is in ASAP in case of criminal use. ****************************************************************************************************** I sold my vehicle. Do I need to let the state Department of Transportation know? As of January 1, 2016 you must notify the Department of Transportation within 30 days if you have sold a vehicle. This includes junked vehicles sold with a bill of sale. You must report: Date of sale Price. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle The name of the buyer

    Lämnade in på Speedy i Västberga för ett större jobb. Har en likadan modell som dig..Det gick faktiskt bra och priset var rimligt! Missljudet kan vara servopumpen som börjar ge upp. Fler tips i Stockholmsområdet mottages gärna!!

    I was surprised when GM didn't elect Cadillac as the obvious Batttery Electric or hybrid champion from the start. Knowing that there is some increased cost for early adopters, and technology maturation needed, Cadillac seemed ideal for the role as opposed to Chevrolet & the Volt approach. That said, as long as gas prices are low in the US, which I believe will stay true over the mid term, trucks or crossovers are out selling cars. So an electric crossover, if done in a sexy way, can be successful.

    Moving Cadillac/GM into the future is starting with an EV of crossover styling; this is a major paradigm shift for Cadillac, one which has been traditionally a stoic reflection of the best you could produce as a car. As it was presented, It looks like a plan, and the execution looks solid but hoping that the new platform will be as versatile as it appears, and that the battery solution works better than anything out there today. These future electrics, while still being touted as our automotive savior, will live or die with batteries and how they evolve and how they move forward. In my opinion, they still need a lot of work; maybe this is the beginning of that work.

    You can start by removing the key from the keychain and use the key without a lot of weight hanging off of it. Or, the key resistor may be dirty or worn. If so, you can solve the problem by cleaning the resistor contacts or, at worst, with a new key. Sometimes this problem is caused by the contacts for the resistor wearing out within the steering wheel mechanism. That's a significant repair problem. I would try a new key first. There is a link to a spreadsheet with OBD codes and lots of other information about the 1997 model year Cadillacs.

    If both are equally hot then I doubt it is a flow issue. If the actuator is working properly I would suggest checking the blend door itself. Maybe the door that the actuator controls is not moving.

    This task was undertaken to get to the photo cell sensor for the Twilight Sentinel on a 1989 Sedan de Ville. The Service Information Manual implies in the step by step instructions that you can remove the speaker grille before removing the upper trim pad on the dash - you can't. The two speaker grilles are held on to the dash pad by pressed metal nuts that screw on to four threaded plastic posts on each grille. You just break off the posts if you try to pry these grilles off. Apparently these were changed over to a friction fit at a later point in time, but that was after 1989 and the manual writers got ahead of themselves. To Remove the Dash Upper Trim Pad: 1. There are three very long screws that are located on the defroster/defogger vent which are easy to see and all of these must be removed. Because they're so easy to see I did not document them with photos. 2. There is a single screw located behind each dash vent, for a total of four. You have to remove the dash vents to get to them. 3. There are two additional screws located inside the glove box at the top that must be removed. Once these are out the dash pad can begin to be lifted out. You have to be careful as there is a hose and an electrical connector attached to the upper trim pad on the passenger side that have to be removed as well. A close-up of that assembly on the passenger side of the upper trim pad: Shot of the driver's side of the upper trim pad from below as I'm removing it from the car. Obviously that was just before I put it on top of the car to take the preceding picture: Now, on to what you'll see under that upper trim pad that's related to the Twilight Sentinel, located on the driver's side: NOTE WELL: When you are putting the dash vents back in the easiest thing to do is to insert them in to the openings with the vanes pointing as close to directly upward as you can, then rotate downward, pressing firmly as you do so. They'll reseat this way very easily. I hope that the above may prove helpful to anyone who needs to get the upper trim pad removed for whatever reason.

    Climate Control no display

    Got a new climate control today at a local yard for $35 bucks. Guy sez its tested so I will install it tomorrow. BAR: Hope its not a BCM I think its just the display as it fizzled out on the way home yet all the functions work. Main worry is the weak heat output. Since all 3 hoses are boiling hot at the 3 way "T" I figure the core is not plugged. Gotta take out the glovebox and check the accuator operation and prob. pull the cover over the heater core to to see if its evenly hot across the face. I see other posts of the heater core being plugged in these cars but the hot in and out heater hoses make me think its a bad accuator. But Im lucky this core can be removed easily from behind the glove box ! My Buick core is the same way as I had to replace that one last year. Cold weather like this makes me love my heated garage!

    Your probably going to need a bcm, located behind the glovebox on top of the heater core box

    HELP WONT START

    I've had batteries act as yours and sounds like it had a bad cell; at full charge it would seem to be okay, then quickly lose the cell and fail to start vehicle. I think your start problem will be corrected (with the new battery). p.s. This can even occur with a fairly new battery. I just had the same (or very similar) problem with a six month old motorcycle battery that just wouldn't hold charge in one of the cells.

    Assuming the battery is not original, old, weak or worn out.....sounds like the car might have a parasitic drain....so a computer, module or relay may be staying turned on and draining the battery.
